In the studio:

Alicia's studio is located in the historic Inscape Arts Building on the outskirts of Seattle's International District. The former INS facility was built in 1929 and is now a thriving arts center with over 100 practicing artists and creative professionals.

Creative process:

Alicia paints with a blend of bee's wax, a plant based resin called Damar Gum and organic pigments in a process known as Encaustic Painting.
